This course is suitable for all ages and families with children.
We do this tour every day. As tranport we use pick ups.
Pick up time at your hotel or guesthouse is about 08:00 h.
After we have picked up all our trainees we will drive to Muang Mai market to buy some bananas and sugarcane to feed the elephants. After that we will drive to "Chang Siam Elephant Training School" (about 1 h).
The mahout training starts with theoretical instructions in the basics of controlling an elephant by experienced elephant trainers in english language.
After the instructions you will start getting in touch with the elephant and apply what you have learned under the supervision of the trainers. You will learn how to ride and lead your elephant and to properly feed your elephant while sitting on its neck.
Lunch will be a Thai set menu at a local restaurant (vegetarian food available).
After lunch you will lead your elephant into the forest to collect food for him for about 2 hours. You will also learn how to lead an elephant into a river for bathing after which you can practice that extensively.
After the bathing session you can take a rest with tea or coffee before we drive back.
We will be back in Chiang Mai at about 18:30 hours.
